I only support the NWDR image. A lot of time has gone into making sure
things run properly in that environment. If you have a DRAWS hat I
haven't seen a compelling reason not to use the NWDR image.
Why I want to take the "build a pi" is that there are more progs IWhich programs?
Having said that ...
If you use your own custom image the most common problem is that the
Raspbian kernel was broken sometime between 12/15/2020 & 01/07/2021
The last kernel that had a working tlv320aic driver required by DRAWS
was version: 5.4.83
The earliest kernel that has fixes for this driver and a couple of other
problems is version: 5.10.31 which has NOT been released by the Raspbian
To display your current kernel version:
If you use the following command you will get a bleeding edge
(unreleased) kernel from Raspbian that 'should' have the kernel fixes.
If you are NOT using the NWDR image I would recommend getting my scripts
anyways to help debug things. As user pi:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install git
git clone https://github.com/nwdigitalradio/n7nix
Now run the bug info script and post the results.
To verify that you are running the latest versions of the HF programs
# You should see something like the following which shows the installed
# versions of HF programs on your system.
